The Mart Relax Lounge Chair for B&B Italia is a master­piece result­ing from exten­sive research by B&B Italia and Antonio Citte­rio into the process of ther­mo­form­ing leather on a large scale. This inno­v­a­tive tech­nique allows the thick leather to mimic the complex curves of the seat form, creat­ing a luxu­ri­ous and func­tional design. The Mart lounge chair is avail­able in both textile and leather versions, allow­ing you to choose the perfect mate­r­ial that suits your style and preferences.

The chair has two base styles — a cruci­form swivel base or a chic recti­lin­ear cradle frame. The latter is a perfect contrast to the curva­ceous form of the seat, giving the impres­sion that it is float­ing above the floor. The Mart Relax Lounge Chair comes in differ­ent sizes depend­ing on the adjust­ment of the recti­lin­ear base and is avail­able in a bright or black chromed finish, as well as painted finishes of black or bronze nickel.

The inter­nal seat struc­ture is fiber­glass covered with cold-formed polyurethane, ensur­ing dura­bil­ity and comfort. For the fabric version, numer­ous textiles are avail­able, while the thick leather versions are limited to six color choices. This chair caters to luxury consumers who appre­ci­ate the perfect combi­na­tion of form and func­tion. Order the Mart Relax Lounge Chair now and indulge in the ulti­mate relaxation experience.


Antonio Citterio


Inspired by icons such as Eileen Gray, Charles and Ray Eames, and George Nelson, Italian designer Antonio Citterio has built an extremely successful career in the furniture industry. He’s known for his emphasis on craftsmanship and materiality, a combination that’s defined a longtime partnership with B&B Italia. Citterio has been responsible for designing all new collections by Maxalto since 1993. He ensures that each product, like his Dives sofa or Alcova canopy bed, clearly delineates its function and is comfortable and liveable as much as grand and luxurious.

Born in 1950 in the north Italian city of Meda, Antonio Citterio opened his first office at the age of 22. The architect and designer supposedly had decided on his career path by age 13.

Citterio went on to collaborate with Terry Dwan on architecture projects through the late 1990’s before forming a practice with Patricia Viel that’s today called Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. Their significant work includes the Technogym headquarters, Bulgari Hotels around the world, Qatar Airways lounges, the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Milan, and the B&B Italia Center for Research in Novedrate, Italy.
